Burns Farm Caravan, Camping & Glamping
“A broad choice of options on offer, including lodges, bell tents and serviced pitches.” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
Just a short distance from the A66, Burns Farm is in an excellent location for those wishing to explore the northern area of the beautiful Lake District National Park. Some of England’s most iconic mountains, Blencathra and Skiddaw, are a short distance from the site as is the 4000-year-old Castlerigg Stone Circle with its spectacular views. The touring area has well-spaced, fully serviced pitches and a choice of dog-friendly or dog-free camping fields. Glamping is a real feature here – there’s one field of superbly equipped bell tents that have the option of a dedicated private bathroom within the stylish amenity block; empty bell tents are also available if you want to bring your own equipment. There’s also luxury, superbly appointed cabins with en suite facilities, WiFi and outside, screened hot tubs; some of these pods are also dog friendly. The park has a smart and welcoming reception, a shop and stunning landscaping. All this, together with the views, will ensure a memorable experience.

About the area
Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.
Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
